Aaron Swan Jr Cause of Death
Records show Swan pleaded guilty to robbery/grievous bodily injury and conspiracy. He was sentenced to three to six years in prison, but was released after just over a year. Also in 2017, court records show he received probation after pleading guilty to possessing an illegal firearm, taunting a police animal, escape, reckless endangerment, trespassing and resisting arrest.
In 2019, records show that he pleaded guilty to drug distribution and was sent back to prison until he is paroled in June 2021. In November 2021, he was charged with theft, simple assault and terrorist threats. A police report says that Swan stole a Glock pistol from a parked car on the south side. When the owner of the gun appeared, the two men fought. Police say Swan threatened to kill the gun’s owner and then ran to a nearby park. The police never caught him.
Weeks later, on Christmas Day, police tracked Swan to a Penn Hills apartment complex using Apple AirPods that Swan allegedly stole, according to a criminal complaint. Officers found him asleep in his car with a green Glock pistol and ordered him to get out. Swan tried to drive away, but his car got stuck.
The police report says that he jumped out of the car and ran into the nearby woods. That was his last contact with police until Monday’s shooting. According to the Department of Corrections, Swan’s probation was revoked in April after he failed to report to his probation officer.
